About a month ago I started an experiment in converting the IUCN Red  
List to RDF. The IUCN's data licensing policies are not entirely  
clear, and I've not been able to get a good answer from them as to  
whether this is OK, so until I hear differently, this data and the  
URLs used should be considered unstable. (If anyone here has contacts  
within IUCN who could clarify things, I'd love to hear from them.)

Anyway, this URL represents the population of Western Gorillas:

	http://life.buzzword.org.uk/2009/populations/9404#population

The species is:

	http://life.buzzword.org.uk/2009/populations/9404#taxonomy

And their IUCN assessment is:
